At Woodlawn Nature Center, a “docent” is a member of the staff who guides and enhances the nature center experience
for WNC members and guests. 

Being a docent is itself the ultimate nature center experience. 

It fully opens you up to our woods, exhibits, programs, projects and collections as nothing else can.  More importantly, it engages you very directly in the fulfillment of our mission to intimately connecting as many people as possible to nature, natural history and the future of our planet.

To be a docent, you do not have to learn everything there is to know about the woods, facilities, and collection.  None of us do.  You do not have to be a dynamic and charismatic public speaker, though being a successful docent will help you cultivate your communication skills. 

To be a docent, all you really have to do is be yourself and to extend a friendly hand to others.

Being a docent can be extremely rewarding, but it isn’t right for everyone nor is it the only way to serve as a volunteer at Woodlawn Nature Center.

There are many other roles that need to be filled.  We have needs for curators, technicians, researchers, administrators, grant writers, teachers, caretakers, archivists, grounds keepers, maintenance, housekeeping, gardeners, carpenters, electricians, artists and so many others.
